You’ve got to be kind to yourself, right?
For many of us, life has some pretty tough parts or patches. As part of a wraparound strategy for self-care, it’s good to have a bunch of little things that can just make a day easier, or give us a little pickmeup on a sad or slow or hard afternoon.
So today’s YouTube party is dedicated to clips that come with a smile pre-packed, ready to be delivered to your face.
Thanks to Jody for the first two: one was our standard bad day pickmeup for years, the other I woke up to this morning, as it was helping her gorgeous two-year-old boy start the day more happily. It was a lovely way to start a sunny day in Auckland.

Pretty self-explanatory. Possibly not recommended for those whose frontal lobes are yet to develop fully.
Katy Perry, oompah styles
Possibly only funny if you like science
‘That’s like, massively disrespecting of your trousers.’
Armstrong and Miller are just marvellous. Also for fans of British sketch comedy.

Now it’s your turn. I think all of those are hilarious but a) I know you won’t all agree and b) I’d love some new material, please. So please add your favourite cheer-up clips in the comments. Thanks!
